FeathersAudiobook CD - 2008
Frannie doesn't know what to make of the poem she's reading in school. She hasn t thought much about hope. There are so many other things to think about. Each day, her friend Samantha seems a bit more holy. There is a new boy in class everyone is calling the Jesus Boy. And although the new boy looks like a white kid, he says he s not white. Who is he?
During a winter full of surprises, good and bad, Frannie starts seeing a lot of things in a new light - her brother Sean s deafness, her mother s fear, the class bully s anger, her best friend s faith and her own desire for the thing with feathers.
Newbery Honor-winning author Jacqueline Woodson once again takes listeners on a journey into a young girl s heart and reveals the pain and the joy of learning to look beneath the surface."
